Start organizing now, get a site now, plan the event schedule now, get a head 
cook now.  
Draw up a list of things you need for the event and where to get them. 
 Figure out pricing as soon as possible, consulting with your head cook, and 
figuring the site cost per person.  
Make a list of tasks you need to accomplish along with deadlines.  
Get your event announcement together ASAP.  
Recruit a staff for the event.  
Delegate various tasks as necessary to your staff.
Go over your task list and make sure it's current, along with deadlines.
Use local resources such as former autocrats, anyone who has access to a nice 
site, etc.
As long as you stay organized, you'll be fine!
